Founding Principal Doug Bania is hosting a Table Topic at the 2021 International Trademark Association (INTA) Annual Meeting, the world’s premier intellectual property conference.
Doug’s discussion “Can Trademark Infringement Be a Victimless Crime? Why Some Defendants Should Pay $0 Damages Even if They are Liable for Trademark Infringement,” will explore situations where infringement may not equate to financial responsibility, and how to navigate these issues using different methods and tools. The Table Topic is on November 15 at 12 PM Pacific Time. Doug also serves on the Right of Publicity Committee for INTA.
The 2021 INTA Annual Meeting strives to be the leading conference of IP leaders worldwide, creating a space for innovation and networking. Table Topics provide an opportunity for global attendees to meet in a small group setting to discuss a pre-selected topic related to brands and IP law and practice. Table Topics are moderated one-hour virtual sessions with no more than 15 to 20 participants and relate the conference’s educational tracks.
